North Korea rips up non-aggression pacts with South

Quote

North Korea has announced it is voiding non-aggression pacts with South Korea and severing its hotline with Seoul, hours after threatening the US with a pre-emptive nuclear strike.

North Korea "abrogates all agreements on non-aggression reached between the North and the South," the state-run Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea said in a statement.

Do you think this is just another ramping up of aggro for the internal audience, perhaps to shore up support for baby Kim Jon, or a real [if insane] threat to begin aggression?

Maybe China is going to have to take some stern action? North Korea doesn't seem to be answering tugs on the leash any more.

North Korea 'in state of war' with South

Quote

North Korea says it has entered a "state of war" with the South and will deal with every inter-Korean issue accordingly.

The announcement was made in a joint statement attributed to all government bodies and institutions and carried by the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).

It comes as the North ratchets up talk of striking targets in the United States.

A selection of stories on North Korea's current sabre-rattling:

Pyongyang has not specified how long the ban will remain in effect.

It seems to me that North Korea is attempting to goad the USA into action.

If ever there was a country crying out for a 'police action' regarding the treatment of its own citizens, surely it would be North Korea.

Scotto: I would agree if it wasn't for the fact that intervention has proved to be a disaster. We need to wait for the revolt of the North Korean middle class.

George, yes, I agee that the interventionist actions in the past have led to many grave consequences; it's really hard to justify action on almost any grounds. It galls me though that all the discussion is on the nuclear arms issue when in fact there are likely the most grevious human rights violations going on there every day and nothing is said about it.

Is there actually a middle class there at all? It seems to me that the leadership is waging a constant holocaust against its own people for the purposes of staying in power.

Scotto: I agree totally. There is a middle class but it is small ,and as you say, under pressure. I imagine that the Chinese will be trying to strengthen its hand. I wish that intervention would help; this is an evil regime.

GP: If there is going to be an intervention, I imagine it would be by the Chinese. Hard to imagine how many cats that would set amongst pigeons in diplomacy land!

Scotto: China fears a collapsed state on its borders. The political, economic and social costs would be immense. I imagine that its current policy is to calm NK and provide it with an exit strategy so it can escape the current mess.

I'm guessing your right... Although what that exit would be is a bit of a mystery, as Kim seems to be playing to a largely unseen internal audience. If he's trying to prove himself by rattling the sabre, how far will he feel he needs to go?

I don't think he knows. He has to convince his military that he is tough,but the danger is that he might make an error and push too hard.The exit might be economic aid and some sort of non aggression treaty.Meanwhile the babies starve and abuses mount in the north.

Much as I know it would not work, part of me laughs at the prospect of that scene.
